THE WALTER H. SCHULZE GALLERY 
OF AMERICAN PAINTINGS 

Captain Walter H. Schulze, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul 
Schulze, of Chicago, was graduated from West Point in 
the Class of 191 7. 

In the World War he was assigned to the Air Service. 
On the day of the signing of the Peace Treaty, which 
terminated the great struggle, he was given the honor of 
carrying news of the inspiring event to the American forces 
east of the Rhine. After delivering his message, his plane 
became unmanageable and crashed to the ground, resulting 
in his death. 

In memory of their son Walter, Mr. and Mrs. Paul 
Schulze have given to the Art Institute the group of 
American Paintings shown herein. They have been suitably 
installed in Gallery 47.
